Cover blurb:
‘You’ve just seen the world through the eyes of a storyteller’

As its working title ‘The All-Father’s Army’ implies, The Girl Who Died (2015) blends Norse mythology with modern comic whimsy, shifting deftly between registers like the poems and sagas it evokes. This Black Archive examines the story’s treatment of the masculine and feminine in Viking society, the power of laughter to ward off evil, and how the Doctor, like the mythical Odin, functions as both a trickster and a saviour.

Tom Marshall is an editor, translator and critic, and a Norse scholar specialising in ecocritical readings of Ragnarok.


THE BLACK ARCHIVE:
Book-length looks at single Doctor Who stories from 1963 to the present day

“A grandly ambitious thing to attempt with something as exhaustively detailed as (Doctor Who). But they actually manage it. Treat your bookshelf."
